I'm using Windows 10 as a member of the Administrators group.
I've set up my group policy for UAC such that Windows prompts for credentials whenever something requires elevated access.
On more than once occasion, I've needed elevated access repeatedly in a short time interval. For example: when experimenting with setting up shared internet connections, (re)moving files on a protected drive, etc. In many situations, these actions are not part of a bulk operation, so an "All as administrator" option is not available. On these occasions, I have to type my PIN every 2 seconds, sometimes dozens of times.
On Linux, as a
sudo, there is a configurable timeout period such that after typing your password, you can use
sudo for a short while without having to re-type the password every time.
So, I'm looking for the Windows analog for that mechanism. Does such a concept exist in the Windows world? Or am I trying too hard to make Windows behave like Linux and am I just approaching the problem "all wrong"?
grace period or
pin timeout and similar terms have not proven very fruitful...
